A man was taken to hospital after a lorry crash in Attleborough on the A11 this morning.

Two ambulance crews attended the scene where a lorry had crashed into the central reservation near the Shell Garage.

The driver - a man in his 50s - was complaining of chest pains. He was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital with a suspected fractured pelvis and is in a serious but stable condition.

Emergency services were called around 7am and the A11 in Besthorpe was partially blocked at the B1172 London Road junction.

Two fire crews from Wymondham made the scene safe and police remained there for several hours.
